Q: Neighbors have been asking Mosaic Fertilizer to explain what we are referring to when we discuss the confining layer.
A: The confining layer is a geologic formation composed of clay, sand/gravel and limestone. The Hawthorne Formation confining layer separates the surficial and intermediate aquifers. Remediation efforts are focusing on sealing the base of the sinkhole in this confining layer.
